Vodacom has introduced its fleet management solution in Lagos, saying it is a secure and effective solution and developed in partnership with Tracker South Africa for businesses.

The solution, which comes in two packages, LiveTrack and TomTom, enables companies of any size to easily manage and control in real time, all the activities of their fleets of vehicles and machines, and then create reports containing the most important information to optimise and guarantee the fleet security.

Vodacom stated that for a flat monthly charge, companies could equip their fleet with a complete solution based on GSM and GPS technologies and access it at any time from any location through an Internet connection.

According to the company, benefits of the solution include real-time tracking and monitoring of fleets through a secure customer web portal.

Others are the location detection of vehicles in need of assistance, instant emergency notification, speed violation, alerts when vehicle enters or leaves a predefined or Geo-fenced area and detailed trip reports specifying start and stop times, as well as start and end locations of a company’s entire fleet.

“The solution enables companies to optimise and control their material resources, leading to reductions in logistics costs, by controlling kilometers travelled, fuel consumption and maintenance costs,” the Senior Partner, Product Portfolio, Vodacom Business Nigeria, Abu Etu, said.

He said that one of the major benefits of the solution was stolen vehicle recovery.

“In the event of your vehicle being stolen or hijacked, our National Emergency Contact Centre is able to locate your vehicle, immobilise it and give a detailed report of its location,” he said.

Etu added that in the unfortunate event of an accident, the solution is able to generate a detailed report that will give an insight into how it happened.
